It can be alot of reason, first what are the temps? If its to hot they will soak to try to cool off, the basking area needs to be in the mid 90's, the warm end needs to be about 85, and the floor/cool end, needs to be aboult 75-80. A good digtal min/max thermometer at walmart for 15 bucks will make your life alot easer! Also whats the humidity? Amazons like to stay at about 70-75%, and that could possibly be the reason, but I never had one soak for that reason. One more thing, is he about to shed? They will do that sometimes when they are about to shed, if you don't all ready know look for flaky scales, color dooling and blue eyes. Also how big of a water bowl are you using? The filter might be a little over kill, but a very good idea any how, I use small dog/cat watter bowls for my amazons. Also just a little tip, I try to put the bowl up in the "limbs" I made a little hide away box on top of the cage for my female amazon and have her water bowl on top, she seems to prefer having it up there. Well hope this helps.
